The beginning of knowledge (Prov 1:7-1:7)

“The fear of Yahweh

Is the beginning of knowledge.

Fools despise wisdom.

Fools despise instruction.”

This is the famous saying about the fact that all knowledge, wisdom, and instruction begins with the fear of Yahweh. Unlike a natural curiosity, this fear of God is the starting point for all wisdom. Fools are the ones who despise wisdom and any kind of instruction. Generally speaking, the fools are people who behave badly.
